but we work really hard with the and the families there. we have a passion for teaching them at just and the kids absolutely love coming out to the school so just having this time to higight our school, i'm so tful for highlightin ju emenry. >>walter: thank you foroming on so when you can't meet the need for the supplies, basically you teachers have to pick up the slack, right? >> yes. unfortunately, we start year coming out of our pockets with quite a bit of money to try pplement. when things arenad, and that's great, and we need people tona te, donate, teachers mone puschool year.level, how you feel the kids have start with th
need. i mean, having the supplie that you need is one way to sort of level t playing field so the playing field is not always level. but we try to do that by giving them the tngs that they need. we t to support them emotionally. we try to support their social growth. but we absoly need to support their academic growth and this is one of the ways we cano that. >>walter: and really quickly, i know we're running out of time, how do you feel when people come up and start >> i love it. you're providing a child with what they absolutely need and you're letting someone know that you care, that you're a part of this community and you care about the least in the community. >>walter: katrina, thank you so much. toss it back to you. we're right here outside of our studios on -- what is this, north a? come by and drop stuff off. look for the list on our website, fox13news.com. >>laura: be sure to thank her

wrong and a lot of our kids just don't have the resources to get these supplies themselves. >>charley: i think of a social aspect of it, too. if you're the one student who doesn't have the notebook and everybody else dodey you feel, maybe i'm poor. maybe my parents can't dohis or that. let's take that out of it. if everybody has something, we take that social stigma away, too. >> that's exactly right. it's hard for kids to walk into a classroom and know they don't have the supplies that other kids have. it's andwhy. so we supplies we can year because kids run of s going to mak teachers that needsthe. we'll take themad. we'll make it just drive throu it's the long. you have to forroad.

roads. >>vanessa: we're sing quite a bit craes popping up so i'm just going to sti with se of the biggerones. a new one we're following affecting linebgh avenue, lane blockage here. we're seeing delays. this is at the intersectionith sheldon road. it sounds like this is a big scene. we're hearing this i a vehicle apd underneath the fuelart of the tanker trucko where they're carrying all the fuel. about 5,000 gallons of diesel is
some difficulty in extricating whoever is inside tt car. we don't know the extent of injuries but as far as a traffic standpoint, avoid that area. instead of taking linebaugh, the main area of concern, as far as the sh concer waters to the south. eastbound, wtbnd throughlive lk d as we t u can seeling some rain soe youour out the dooradalditily hea cas but fairly dark so just kee epealed that direction. ash repord thacould ussome lan blockas, mgo rao jtatch out for wee yyoon hothmo

? ba da ba ba ba many oheountsie up in the paarea, too. there it is, just streaming down as had the last three mornings have actually beenike this and for pasco, hernand and citrus county, we have the flood watch continuing until tomorrow evening. some of the heaviest of the rain that picture there, plus you looke radar and we've got some very heavy rain moving over the bridges now.
if you could just hold off your morning commute in theampa area for about 30 minutes, i think you would probablye a lot safer because look at these bridges, too. the entire couney campbell covered in tropical downpours. same for theowd frankland and the gandy. this activity working from t to. it goingt 30 miles an hour. deal wit some very heavy rain, at least it's movg through quickly enoug t roadways. as you goorth on 19 and you get up to hoday, new port ey we're just east of 19 where that picture was we just showed you, t rain continues to comedown. someeavy rain east of hudso along and that rain starts to sneak closer and closer to i-75 and then up into hernando county itrus county, the rain continues heaviest rain will be along the coast and to the north, right th rough tomorw evening and
atha point we may g tonight and tomorrow. we'll talk about that in a few minutes. >>vanessa: you mentioned the wet roadways s folks, please be sure to leave early. i want to remind you again of the two big lane blockage crashes we're dealing with right now. both west of the veterans expressway. due to the tanker truck accident where the vehicle is trapped underneath the truck. we know there' injuries rerted and police are on scene directing traffic. best bet is just to completel avoid that area instead of taking linebaugh, stick with waters. other crash we're following with full shutdown is affecting memorial highway. there's some injuries reported with this one as well with hillsborough avenue being the best work around. here is the new crash. pinellas county drivers could
so far haven't seen them yet but this lingers for a bit, definitely so. southbound two lanes blocked at the intersection with roosevelt boulevard. looks very slick here. this is in pinellas. making your way toward the howard frankland bridge, 275 at fourth street north, slow it down and be careful. >>russell: 6:35 right now. developing right now, delta airlines says all of the flights are grounded, all of them due to a system outage. >>laura: we're talking about a worldwide alcides segui live for us at tampa international. have you been able to learn anything more about what's going on? >>reporter: unfortunately, they're not saying ahole lot.do employees know what is going on, either. all they know is what you reported, that it is a systemwide oage and as of right now, all flights are grounded so what does that mean if you're catching a flight here at t.i. and you're flying dea, that means you'd better get out here earl this line is growing by the
about 15 people waiting in line. no i have to tell you this le is about 100, possibly more than that. you can see how many folks are here. right now there's probably about 25, 30. on the other side of that wall, you line growing from left to right on your screen as well. there's a lot more people trying to check in to their delta airlines flight. one of the issues here and you can't see it now because you have the people in the way but you typically have a sel those are not working as well. tens of thousands possibly have been affected by this. i've been on social media all morning long and we're talking about, as you mentioned, really across the globe. flights from london, flights in hawaii, flights in boston as well, all of them are being delayed monday morning and according to delta airlines twitter page, it says our systems are down everywhere. an airline spokesman has
immediately have any details. again, passengers reported delays at heathrow, tokyo, los angeles, again here at tampa international airport and what is very interesting about this, and i've been talking about this with our executive producer and you can't see it now, unfortunately, because it's behind this wall but there is a board and the board basically indicates all of the delta flights and from what i can see -- can you see that, joe? can you see that? okay. there's a flight that leaves at 7 c. -- 7:15 this morning. flight e6687, that flight was supposed to take off at 7:05 and it's been delayed to 7:50 but that is the only one that i see there on that but from what we understand, delta is saying that all the
we've beenrying to contact deltahr tgh their twitter page and through their spokesperson, and hopefully we'll get more definiti answers throughout "good day." >>laura: thank you. also making headlines, senator rubio says that women infted with the kaus vir should not be allowed to have abortions even ifir bav micro cephaly. that's the severe disorder that smaller than average there's no cure and it could be life threatening. according to thecdc, floridas etate seconworst affected zika after new york. it is the only to have infections caused by local mosquitos now totaling 16. >>russell: food and drug administration has the authority to regulate all tobacco products. the past fe years, number of high school studentssing e-cegs has dropped 900%.
